Biological Activity

Description Albiglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 agonist (GLP-1 agonist).
GLP-1R [1]
In vitro

Albiglutide is a recombinant fusion protein consisting of two copies of a 30-amino-acid sequence of modified human GLP-1 (fragment 7-36), modified with a glycine substituted for the naturally occurring alanine at position 8 in order to augment resistance to DPP-4[1].

In vivo Glucose lowering occurs within 24 h after a single dose of albiglutide, as a result of binding of the molecule to the GLP-1 receptor. The reduction in both fasting and postprandial glucose levels is dose related. Albiglutide is less potent than GLP-1. In animal models of diabetes, albiglutide administration stimulates increased β-cell mass. Following SC administration of a single 30-mg dose to patients with type 2 diabetes, maximum concentration is reached in 3-5 days with half-life of 3.6-6.8 days. The apparent volume of distribution after a single dose of albiglutide was 8.2-18.5 L. The eventual fate of albiglutide in the circulation is degradation into small peptides and individual amino acids. Albiglutide had no apparent effects on cardiovascular function, heart rate, electrocardiographic intervals, or respiratory function and did not produce any evidence of electrocardiographic abnormalities or arrhythmias in male cynomolgus monkeys. Furthermore, there were no albiglutide-related effects on neurobehavioral functional assessments. Albiglutide does not cross the blood–brain barrier to reach the satiety centers[1]. Albiglutide reduced myocardial infarct size and improved cardiac function and energetics following myocardial I/R injury which are associated with enhanced myocardial glucose uptake and a shift toward a more energetically favorable substrate metabolism by increasing both glucose and lactate oxidation[2].

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:

Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )

  • C1

* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:

Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
